Author has written 3 stories for Spyro the Dragon.

Just your average fanfic-writing Irishman. :P


Current affairs/What you're probably here for: Chapter 17 is just up. No immediate progress on 18 as of yet. 19/1/15

Mehself: Simply put, I'm a college student that wandered onto this site a little over three years ago in an attempt to find some news about a certain purple dragon. Instead I discovered fanfiction, and have been here ever since. I've made some great friends in my time here, as well as discovering that I love reading good stories and writing bad ones. :P I like to think of myself as fairly friendly, so if you ever feel like a chat about anything (especially purple dragons), be sure to PM

Outside of this site I love exercise, music, reading and gaming. My avatar (One of my OC's, Thu'um) was commissioned for me by the author/artist GoldenGriffiness . She's an all-round awesome person, so go check out her stories and art!


My Stories:

  • No Rest for the Wicked - My very first venture into fanfiction. It's a "Humans in the Spyroverse" story, because I wanted to put a twist on what I felt was a genre completely tabooed by self-inserts. Adventure/Romance set in a post Dawn of the Dragon Avalar. It's a little bit rough being the first thing I ever wrote, but despite not really being able to read it without cringing I'm still proud of it. Despite its flaws it's my most popular story, so perhaps you'll enjoy it. It even has a TVTropes page courtesy of the kind Eddy13, which you can find here . If you're willing to invest a little bit of time into reading, I would recommend this and its sequel...
  • The Serpent Beneath the Flower - This is the sequel to NRftW, beginning 8-10 months after the events of that story. Adventure/Romance. Without giving any details that could spoil the plot, I feel it's a big improvement over its predecessor and I hope I can bring it to a satisfactory conclusion soon. Currently my longest story.
  • Happy Hatchday - A oneshot starring Cyril and Volteer that I wrote after a single scene popped into my head. It's an Adventure/Friendship story, dealing with a promise made between the two in the heat of battle that is fulfilled years later. Written as a kind of feel-good piece, because I feel these are the two most under-appreciated characters in the fandom. if you're here for a quick read, I'd recommend this. Takes place in the same universe as my other two stories, but no prior reading of them is required.
  • All of these stories were proofread and beta'd by Riverstyxx , to who I owe a great deal for convincing me to post anything in the first place. Chances are you know her already. If not, follow that link!
